EESI gives the most balanced, useful, complete and relevant information on topics concerning the environment and energy. I use their fact sheets and white papers all the time for my work within these fields. EESI is the Go To organization.
The quality of content produced by EESI is unmatched. Their briefings on Capitol Hill are phenomenal, their factsheets and newsletters are incredibly informative, and the genuine passion of their staff is infectious. Carol Werner is known throughout the industry as one of the most knowledgeable, well-respected, and undeniably-empathetic leaders within the environmental and energy community and her initiative has yielded an organization with the prodigious ability to enact positive change for present and future generations alike. There are many problems in this field that the world will have to face for years to come, but its organizations like EESI that restore my faith in our ability to meet these challenges head-on.
As a news-and-discussion-network admin focused on caring for people and planet, EESI's dedication to research and fairness makes it a primary resource. I usually share more than one post from EESI every week, and these shares are among our most liked and re-shared.
For years I have relied on the EESI weekly Clmate News summary as the most useful on the subject. It helps me keep up with news on research, planning and negotiations as well as legislation and policy initiatives in the field.
EESI occupies a unique position, contributing to Congress's work but also talking to general public and other interests. Working in a somewhat similar organization, I judge their work to be excellent, and sometimes unmatched, which is why I have contributed to supporting them for years.
The EESI weekly bulletin "EESI Climate Change News" is the most comprehensive and cleanly presented roundup of important environmental events from the previous week. The formatting and presentation makes it easy to digest, while the topics are all well selected and often cover ground that I haven't seen in other sources. I have recommended this newsletter to other climate enthusiasts.
This organization works tirelessly to promote and support efforts to protect the integrity of our environment.
They do this in a strategic and unique way: by addressing and relating to powers in the education, policy, legislative and industrial sectors.
Further, they address multiple areas of impact and influence: power generation, transportation, agriculture, and finance.
I'm delighted to give them my highest rating.

I am just beginning my career in working with climate change and how it relates to public health issues. I had the opportunity to view the briefing, "Climate Impacts in the Midwest: Becoming More Resilient."
This briefing was very well organized and included speakers addressing many different aspects of climate change, including city planning and efficiency of energy use. The information given was very practical and easy to understand, even for a beginner as myself.
I was very impressed.
Thank you, Linda! Glad to hear it was so helpful. Please join us again for another briefing.
If you wanted to set the bar for an organization with the highest impact per-capita staff member, EESI is it. With a small but eminently qualified, competent and passionate staff, EESI manages to do the thankless work on educating Congress that may literally define U.S. environmental health for generations to come. My students and I have worked with EESI on a number of energy-related issues over the last five years. The experience has been nothing short excellent, both for me as an advisor, and for the students as participants in civic engagement. EESI is truly one of the GREAT nonprofits.
I've worked with EESI in a number of capacities, as a former Senate staffer and now as an academic in science policy. Aside from providing an amazing breadth of educational opportunities for those most intimately connected with energy and environmental policymaking, EESI has both vision and competence with shockingly small but hardworking staff. In my most recent association with EESI, Carol Werner and Ellen Vaughan teamed up with a small group of my students to conduct original research on how small businesses view energy efficiency. With EESI's mentoring, the students presented the data to senators and staffers, who used the findings as the basis of letters to several federal agencies. It was a project that not only influenced policy, but the lives and careers of several students. How they find the time and energy to educate Congress AND the rest of us, I'll never know. Hands-down, EESI is among the most engaged and dedicated organization among its peers.
EESI does an excellent job of providing solid information about environmental and energy issues that are beeing debated at teh Congressoinal levels. The panels they put together to discuss these issues are wll balance and invariably include experts in the field. They are an asset in Washington!
Information is powerful; equipping citizens with information is empowering. Shifting our relationships with our Natural Resources begins with shifting Awareness.
EESI efficiently performs the all-important function of cultivating Awareness in the Resource arena.
Resource Management is PEOPLE Management. Illuminating issues and informing citizens catalyzes responsible, innovative decisions in Resource Managment. Thank you EESI for your work~!
EESI utilizes a variety of different means to draw attention to important environmental issues facing this country and possible solutions. Through congressional briefings, this year's very successful and informative Energy Expo, fact sheets, and Climate Change News, they work to fulfill their organization's mission. Those working at EESI are both passionate and informed about these issues and always teach me something new, when I have the pleasure of speaking with them.
EESI's newsletter and incredibly informative, objective, and relative. I highly recommend this newsletter for everyone, no matter their role in society.

I have benefited from EESI since the 1980s, when their "green sheets" were the definitive source of information for everything environment and energy-related in Congress, and their briefings on climate change and other topics were the most informative, and balanced, in Washington. As an advocate for renewable energy and my clients who research and develop renewable energy, I know we have all accomplished more and been more effective because we were armed with information from EESI, and because EESI was also educating decisonmakers. Renewable energy has come a long way since the 1980s, and so has EESI. May EESI continue its work for many more.
For more than five years, I have been attending the Energy and Environment Study Institute (EESI) Capitol Hill's Seminars and Conferences. They are well thought out, hosted, and attended. The accomodations and hospitality are excellent! When I chance to speak with other professionals at these events, they are some of the Energy and Environmental Industry's most talented, and connected. The topics could be ripped from the headlines of the major issues of the day, as our world is forced to deal with the environmental pressures of approximately seven billion people. The integration of these issues with our country's legislative and executive branches of government lend the gatherings a sense that these issues will be dealt with intelligently and forthrightly. Even when I am unable to attend, the EESI staff and professionals offer me the seminar materials in a very easy to access web-based, downloadable format so I might stay current on the issue at hand. The good people at EESI are friendly, courteous, professional and made-to-order for the perfectly insane pace of a world in which we live. I highly recommend the EESI organization, its direction and its excellent professionals.
As a climate activist, I find EESI's Climate News indispensable for my work. I do a lot of publicity for climate abatement, and I quote new and valuable information from CN every time I present. I also post news from CN on my community's "Climate" bulletin board and update it every week.
In short, it's an invaluable resource.
I think EESI is one of the most effective groups on Capitol Hill. They rely on credible scientific information to make the case for solid policy. I have worked in energy policy for many years and I turn to EESI for information because I know I can find the latest developments from the nation's experts in the field.
EESI provides insightful, non-partisan information which is highly useful for both policy creation and for the wide ranging clean energy industry segments. Their ability to research data and assemble into reports and presentations is excellent. As a clean energy professional I have attended their briefings and use their database of information routinely in marketing endeavors.
The energy field is complex, and it remains a great source of untapped opportunity in our country. It ranges issues from energy efficiency, domestic and foreign fuel consumption, clean and renewable energy as well as security, jobs and the environment. EESI plays an important role in helping people in the industry as well as congressional leaders understand both substance and nuance. Please keep up the good work.
As a former intern at EESI, I am intimately aware of the organization function and the critical role it plays in educating our decision makers. Beginning with its dedicated staff, the organization provides an immeasurable service to the improvement of environmental and energy policy in this country. I am also deeply thankful for the opportunity to have worked there and the connections and opportunities it has brought me since. Keep up the good work.
